I really like Siamese laksa and I have been coming here to eat Siamese laksa every Saturday after my extra curricular activities during my school years. I see the same old auntie serving drinks till today and found out that she is 80 years old. After over 20 years, I find out that this coffee shop belongs to her. 

Eating here is amazing and brings one back a few decades. The tables are old and the kopitiam is inside an old shop lot. The food is also very cheap at RM 3.50 for a char koay teow. 

There were a lot of ingredients inside the laksa like thinly shredded cucumber, fish, onions, pineapples. The soup is thick enough. One can even opt to mix the 'lemak' (what we call siamese laksa soup) with assam laksa soup. I usually like to eat laksa with crispy fried popiah. Here, the popiah has the crisp to the highest degree. Sometimes, there are crispy prawn fritters to be eaten together too. I notice that they also sell delicious looking nasi lemak with a small assam fried fish and lots of other ingredients too.

If anyone post the question of "Where is the best char koay teow in Penang?" My answer never fails to be at Kedai Kopi Sin Hwa. In fact, every time I come back to Penang, I would definitely make this place my first morning/noon stop. Actually, I never really knew this is the actual name of the kopitiam till today when I decided to write a review about it and starting googling it. I always tell people it is in the middle kopitiam opposite the Pulau Tikus police station. 

The char koay teow here is just nice and not too oily. There were octopus and average sized prawns. The smell is fragrant enough yet the char koay teow is not dark coloured like what people normally fry in KL which usually disappoints me. 

I saw many newspaper cuttings of how the char koay teow hawker won awards in char koay teow cooking contests too.

Roti Babi @ Pulau Tikus Market OK Aug 09, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Stall / Warung

Frankly, I have never eaten roti babi for ages, ever since my grandmother was around. My grandmother used to cook this at home when she was still alive. I am not really a big fan of his as I dislike minced pork. Anyway, since my uncle from UK has never tried this before, we ordered this for his sake. 

The roti babi is deep fried bread with egg sandwiching minced pork. But this stall mixed the minced pork together with sengkuang hence making me feel that I was eating jiu hu char or stir fried sengkuang. So for both mum and I, this is not really what roti babi is.

Deer Satay at Pulau Tikus Market  Smile Aug 09, 2015

Can you believe it that, being a local Penangite, I have never been to Pulau Tikus Market at night hawker stalls for food? I guess I am too health conscious when I was living in Penang to do that. Anyway, not many Penangites will go hunting for hawker food and would usually settle for normal food near our homes unless we 'lepak' a lot. As for me, I hang out in the tuition centres more than anything! 

Anyway, let's get to business. The first item I ordered when I set foot here was the Deer Satay! I mean, it is not everywhere that you see people selling this! 

The verdict? Extraordinary! The venison meat was awesome! The meat was so succulent, juicy and sweet and not rubbery. 

The chicken meat satay was also delicious. It was my first time eating satay whereby the meat was not oily at all and they have excluded the fats from the stick! 

People say that the best satay can be eaten without the sauce and this stall has lived up to this standard. 

This stall also used paper plate made from environmentally friendly sources instead of the 

In essence, I am not really a satay fan but this stall has succeeded in making me its fan! Bravo!

In my Penang Hawker food marathon, I brought my cousin for high tea and early dinner here. 

I ordered Pai Tee which was quite sweet and delicious. 

There was a dollop of chilli, just in a small amount and not too much to make you go har! 

Worth trying this here if you happen to come here. 

The worst item here to avoid is the seafood. I ordered the shells as in the picture and it turned out that the fillings were so difficult to dig out and we ended up wasting almost 15 shells! Mum was very angry and told the hawker and though she reboiled it, the fillings still was a great challenge to be dug out.
